I joined Regent’s in June 2020 as Fellow and Director of Operations, and have studied at Oxford since 2013, first at Kellogg and now at Exeter College. Apart from my operational role, my research interests are in Sports/cultural history and Religion.
My first degree at UCL/UCH was in Genetics. I then studied comparative physiology (MSc) and Classical Civilization (MA) at Birkbeck College, followed by an MBA at Imperial and an MSt at Kellogg College, Oxford. I also have advanced diplomas in English and Religion from Cambridge, and two postgraduate law diplomas (CPE/LPC) from the College of Law. I am currently reading for a MSc in Systems and Software security at Exeter College, Oxford.
My role in College
At Regent’s, I am responsible for the management of the College’s non-academic services and resources. Our teams look after matters relating to accommodation and housekeeping, catering, conferences, maintenance and estates, ICT, security, and health and safety. As a Fellow of the College I sit on a number of College committees. My office is at the back of the General Office, and I am happy to meet students and staff, normally without appointment.
